I wanted to see how much noise there were in the different ISO settings on the Canon EOS 7D. It proved to be quite interesting. It's obvious where the sensor in the camera works best after seeing this test.
For this test I shot the camera with different settings and filtered the signal to make the noise visible.
What I found to be funny is that the camera is just as noisy at 100 as is it at ISO 640 and that ISO 2500 is cleaner than ISO 2000.

Candlelight/Ambient Light Test
The only light in the room besides the candle was some ambient light from streetlights outside. The f-stop was kept consistent throughout. The Canon footage was converted to ProRes HQ using 5DtoRGB, with the Mark II set to 601 color matrix and the Mark III set to 709.

It’s not a secret we love robots here at BLR, so we wanted them to be the heroes in our latest promo clip. Luxury cars with powerful engines to drive through roads under severe speed restrictions, cable TV that allows us to pay to watch all kind of sports, all from our comfortable sofa, and of course, hyper expensive cell phones that do almost everything but making a decent phone call.
Yes, our happiness is based on things we don’t need and governed by entities we don’t control, so what? Sit down and turn on the tv!
The robots were taken from real Japanese robot model kits, and they now hold a privileged position in our freak museum. The bad guy spits real smoke out of its mouth! The environment is made of cardboard houses that were integrated with the help of camera tweaks. It all serves to the purpose of creating a dumb homogeneous atmosphere in which we’re defined by what we’ve got, that is, the same lame things.
Don’t take the message too seriously. This is a promo video we’ve done to laugh at ourselves. We all have an i-diot inside, and it’s so fun!
